Any 60FPS Hacks Successful
Has anyone implemented any 60FPS hacks successfully without doubling the speed of the game?  Two games I am interested in this for are Xenosaga series and Rogue Galaxy, but knowing if any games have successfully been cranked up to 60fps from its original 30fps without doubling the game speed would be interesting to know.

Edit: GoneAyywire is correct, typically when people force a 30fps game to run at 60fps it plays at twice the speed and not the original speed at 60fps.

60FPS hacks successfully without doubling the speed of the game?

I want you to think about that sentence for a second...
I think he meant was 60fps but without fast-forwarding the game speed.
What you want mainly works with variable frame rate games. Basically games not specifically coded to play at 30 fps (or any specific rate) and games where important aspects are not tied to frame rate. Shadow of the Colossus is a variable frame rate game and if you have a really really good PC and you adjust the EE cycle rate you can get the game running above what the PS2 ran it at (up to 60 fps from 20ish the PS2 ran it at), however doing this has a drawback that players of the remaster got treated to which is the game gets harder doing certain actions when the frame rate is higher.

So basically besides the obvious games where animation and other things are keyed to the frame rate (games where everything goes twice as fast when 60fps), it is not always the best thing to make a game that was not really designed to go faster then it was originally designed for... things can go wrong fast.

but far be it from me to stop someone from doing something that might break their game so here is the 60fps thread from this site

A lot of these will probably break the game one way or another because of reasons above, but maybe you will find a game and a code that work for you.
We've seen users making 60 FPS hacks for Gamecube/Wii games (some of them kinda working on console, though, limited by hardware obviously,) so I don't see why people couldn't do it for PS2 games.

I think this would more fall to a different group than the people working on PCSX2, though. The people that are making 60/120 FPS hacks for Dolphin are mostly separate from the people that work on the emulator. It's really a different skillset and mindset required for it.
The thread I linked is basically what you are talking about JMC47, but just unlocking the framerate is not really the solution.  For example lets look at Xenoblade chronicles for the Wii... here are all the codes needed to make the game run at 60 fps

If you just have the last 60 fps speed code then as you can probably tell lots of animations and other issues break or run at the wrong speed.  But this game is fortunate since most if not all the values needed are stored in RAM and are able to be manipulated by cheat codes.  For games with hard coded values you can not even apply these kind of fixes even if the actual speed is not a fixed value.  There are also Dolphin games that you can not find or run 60 fps codes on because of the same issues that happen to PS2 games.
So, yes it can be done on some games.  Yes it takes different skills then writing an emulator (it takes some cheat engine or other memory debugger skills to track down all the values that are needed to be changes).  Finally yes PCSX2 has quite a few 60 fps codes that need far more then just the FPS unlock code that is all that exists.
Where do I enter these codes into on PCSX2? Any idea if the 60 fps code for Rogue Galaxy is properly working without an unwanted speedup, with the exception of possible glitches somewhere in the game. Also I had found the thread but people had complained that it ran the games at 2x the speed so I was uncertain if they even worked properly. But I have seen games running properly at 60fps, I think kingdom hearts was one of them, but not certain. I just know people have pulled it off on PCSX2 and I figured there must be a list of proper 60 hacks rather than a mix of maybe working 60fps hacks.

Edit: I finally got around to grabbing my copy of Rogue Galaxy out of storage to mess around with. Started it up on PCSX2 and to my surprise it is running 60fps from the rip!?!?! I read that this game runs at 30fps on PS2 and PS4, and it is listed in the 60fps hack thread that is linked above. I guess the developers of PCSX2 implemented the 60fps hack in automatically due to no consequential glitches?
No the reported FPS does NOT equal ingame FPS. and Rouge Galaxy has some pretty nasty bugs once you get to Vedan.

May want to check out the wiki page for the game
